Andrew Sutton has been looking for an article on Conductive Education published in December, and I am very pleased to say that I have managed to obtain a copy which I will let him have.
Tuersley-Dixon, L. and Frederickson, N. (2010) Conductive Education: appraising the evidence. Educational Psychology in Practice , 26(4), pp.253-373.
If anyone has any information about what has happened, please do get in touch.
I will let you know how I get on.
I received a very welcome response to my blog about starting to collect together a Library, which I know will be useful for answering enquiries
Anne Wittig, a conductor writes:
Just a quick email saying Happy New Year and I do hope your personal library will grow. I do hope to get more books together and build more on my own. Anyhow, I just wanted to say thanks for setting up the Virtual Library. I browsed a bit on it today and its awesome. Love it. It definitely helps people like me, who are away from big relevant libraries. Thanks again.
I do not get much feed back especially some such as this – very heartening, Anne, thank you very much.
Anne has recently started her own consultancy in British Columbia and also finds time to writes a blog. Do have a look at
So I am doubly pleased she has found time to contact me in this way.
Some good news to start 2011 – Eszter Horvath Tothne writes from Sweden:
Move & Walk today received the permission to start a secondary school (High school) for children with special needs with Conductive Education!!!! Big step!!!!!!
Quite what is happening is not clear yet but more information will appear on the website http://www.movewalk.se/ in the next week or so.
A good start to the new year !
It is nearly two years since the librarian’s post at the Foundation for Conductive Education was made redundant and I left, but I am still regularly asked what is happening to the Library. I have to answer ‘ I don’t know’. I also don’t know if this question is put to those that should know, those who are in charge, and what they say, if asked.
there was an electrical fire last summer but stock was not damaged.
student volunteers have been recruited to help in the Library – doing what I have no idea
there is no prospect of employing a library professional in the near future.
the Library is no longer available all-year round
Just contact me to discuss arrangements.
